Koetter: Falcons used silent count at home against Bears

Exhibit 1A for why the failcowns suck!

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Football teams typically turn to a silent count on offense to combat adverse conditions on the road. The Atlanta Falcons had to rely on such a method at home.

Offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter admitted he had to go with a silent count during Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Chicago Bears at the Georgia Dome. The dome typically is noisy, but there was a little added volume with the influx of Bears fans.

"Believe or not, for a home game, we had to go to silent count because there was enough noise in the dome -- noise always echoes in there both for us and against us," Koetter said. "That's maybe only the second time since I've been here when we've had to go to a silent count at home."

Koetter couldn't recall the other time, although he said it might have been against Seattle last season. The Seahawks won that game, 33-10.

Koetter referenced the silent count in discussing the late-game protection issues by the offensive line against the Bears. He noted that pass-rushers Jared Allen and Willie Young were able to get after Matt Ryan a little harder with the Falcons facing a double-digit deficit, meaning throwing the ball was the only true option. Ryan was sacked a season-high four times in the game.

I read they had to call a time out because of the noise. IN THEIR OWN STADIUM.

That's just funny.

Whatta franchise.

The announcers explained it as, "Bear fans travel well", ... can it be any more embarrassing being a Failclown fan? Melty Ice was rocking the ol' "deer-in-the-headlights" look pretty well on national camera also, .

I really wouldn't know if they used a silent count before, but I have been to several Saints games and one Steeler game when it was really, really loud, esp on Falcons' third down.
